The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is continuing to make its way among the A-listers. But, you know, they're only using ice water. Our favourite new mom, Olivia Wilde, took it a step further and used it to bring attention in a fun way to breastfeeding, as well—she dumped a bucket of breastmilk on her head!

"I hope it's OK," she says in the her video. "Couldn't find any water, so I'm going to use breastmilk."

"Took me all night to make this," she jokes.

Olivia later clarified on Twitter that the bucket was not all (or actually?) breastmilk. "Oh wait some of you thought that was really breastmilk?" she tweeted. "Oh dear. Uh thank you? But my boobs aren't that generous. Haha."


She also makes it clear that she's doing the challenge in a friend's honour and that she's made a donation.

And here's the slo-mo edition on her Instagram account (moooooo...).

Olivia is fast becoming a kind of poster celebrity for breastfeeding lately. The Her actress made headlines during World Breastfeeding Week (August 1 to 7) for posing for the September issue of Glamour Magazine with her four-month-old son, Otis, on her breast.

“Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn’t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that,” Olivia continues. “Breastfeeding is the most natural thing. I don’t know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we’ve been discussing—that we know we can be.”
